Coaches are reminded that they can not enter a junior varsity team unless a varsity team, consisting of at least 5 runners, is entered.

The entry committee will divide the number of schools to determine the field for the varsity events. Race assignments are made based on the enrollments of the participating schools and on the total number of runners entered for each event. Every attempt is made to create balanced fields for each event. Schools with the smaller enrollments will run in the earlier events; and, schools with the higher enrollments will run in the later events. The field for each event may be found on the Event Assignments page beginning on Wednesday, 27 September 2017.

Coaches of schools that would compete in Events 1, 2, 3 & 4 (for schools with smaller enrollments) may opt to "move up" their Modified and Varsity squads in order to complete in Events 7, 8, 9 & 10 (for schools based on larger enrollments). Please note we have scheduled one JV boys event and one JV girls event this year. Coaches who want their runners to "move up" should call Dan Amado, 315-624-2084, before 7:59 PM, Sunday, 24 September 2017. Please conform to the deadline.

Coaches are reminded that the deadline for completing the entry process is 7:59 PM, Sunday, 24 September 2017. Complete details on entering the meet are found on the Entering the Meet page.
